Orgone
Orgone
Orgōne (Or-gōne). Noun. 1. A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy, the creative force in nature. 3. A soul music juggernaut with 8 heads and one heart.

Now and always, Orgōne delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgōne has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since.

“We intend our music to have an inhibition-canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And sometimes it takes a big 'ol push... a love shove, if you will. And we're well versed in those."

Fearless vocalist Adryon de León elevates the octets soulfulness to intoxicating new levels on Orgone's latest studio album, Beyond The Sun. Dubbed "stank face inducing glory" by Okayplayer, the record is a lightning rod of inspiration for a new generation of funk music lovers. Following the 45 release in April of “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman” featuring Cyril Neville, Orgone plans to drip steamy new singles one by one into the world throughout 2017.
Big Blue Ox
Big Blue Ox
Big Blue Ox is an unapologetic 8-piece soul explosion with one goal; to stick you directly in the face. Comprised from Northern Utah's most notorious musical demons, they possess collective vision, common objective, and a combined century's worth of performance experience and education. All of which tightly bound and driven by nasty intent.

Core members consist of guitarist George Simon, Josh Francis pulling double duty on keys and trumpet, bassist Greg Shaw with Wachira Waigwa-Stone on the drum throne, and percussionist Lauren Johnson to round out the rhythm section. The dangerous 'Ox Horns' section is made up of Mason Petersen on tenor sax, Michael Bigelow commanding the baritone and alto sax, and Eric Devey behind the trumpet.

Together Big Blue Ox delivers swanky, dirty funk, soul, and afrobeat grooves to elevate the movement of your mind and booty.
